Updated 11 Jun 2021


In May 2021, there were over 100,000 new cars reported as sold. Out of the top 10 most sold models, six of these were either 4x4 utes or 4x4 wagons.

With so many new off-road vehicles being bought, you can bet your bottom dollar that many of these owners will be looking to take their very capable new vehicles on some off-road adventures.

But what happens if you’ve never done this before? Well, there are some basics you’ll need to cover off before heading out, and our mates at Bendix have partnered with 4x4 Camping and Adventures to bring you a detailed video on what you need to do to prepare.

For starters, one of the most important things you can do to increase the overall safety of your 4x4 is to upgrade the brakes. Luckily, Bendix makes this easy with their Ultimate 4WD Brake Upgrade Kit.

Take a look at the video to find out what else you should do to prepare yourself and your 4x4 for off-road driving!
